Live and work in New York and San Francisco USA
The music of D-I.S.K. is rich in texture, going from a thick creamy porridge to, as described by the Village Voice: "an excruciatingly delicate wisp".
It is comprised of Bonnie Kane, Ray Sage and long distance collaborator, Ernesto Diaz-Infante. A fluke in festival programming
during 2002 solidified the trio format of Bonnie, Ray and Ernesto into D-I.S.K.
Their first CD as a trio, "The Nature of Things" was recorded during studio sessions in 2002 and 2003, and finally released in 2004.

Bonnie Kane: saxophone, flute and electronics
(bandleader of W.O.O., W.O.O.Revelator and WORLD OF TOMORROW, musician in Mambo Mantiss, D.-I.S.K. and KLN).
Bonnie Kane, a pioneer in extended saxophone and electronics technique. A dedicated improvisor and bandleader with a focus on improvised composition,
the composition being defined by the relationship of the players. "I prefer to work in a band format where there is an ongoing and
developing relationship between the band members. Improvisation is about the essence of communication during the moment.
The depth of that communication built over time is realized in the quality and spirit of the music played.
I am interested in the soul, in the deepest of feelings, in the magic moment of connection and creation."
Has been playing with drummer Ray Sage, since 1990, first in W.O.O., which mutated into W.O.O.Revelator.
It was during the W.O.O.Revelator period in 1999, that they first met and played with Ernesto Diaz-Infante.
This resulted in the CD, "The First Time" featuring the NYC based W.O.O.Revelator (Ray Sage, Bonnie Kane, and Chris Forsyth)
along with the California duo of Pat Harmon and Ernesto Diaz-Infante. During 2000, there was an opportunity f
or Bonnie and Ernesto to do a small duo tour. This resulted in the CD, "Mysterious Planet".
A fluke in festival programming during 2002 solidified the trio format of Bonnie, Ray and Ernesto into D-I.S.K.
